BOOK ON A DISCOUNT SITE, GET A DISCOUNT EXPERIENCE. - Hotel Secrets from Behind the Front Desk
Reservations made through Internet discount sites are almost always slated for our worst rooms. Does this seem unfair?
First of all, we earn the slimmest profit from these reservations. And honestly, those guests didn't really choose our
property based on quality; they chose based on value. We were at the top of a list sorted by price. But the guest behind
them in line, the one with a heavy $500 rate, she selected this hotel. When she comes to New York, she goes to our
website to see what's available. Since we have no reason to assume Internet guests will ever book with us again, unless
our discount is presented to them, it truly makes business sense to save our best rooms for guests who book of their own
